Donny van de Beek’s full-time response to Man Utd loss captured on camera
Out of favour midfielder Donny van de Beek’s full-time response to Manchester United’s humiliating 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool has been captured on camera.
The Dutchman was an unused substitute for the fifth successive Premier League game as the Red Devils were overrun by their fiercest rivals.
Naby Keita opened the scoring for the visitors after only five minutes before a defensive mix-up between Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw led to Diogo Jota doubling their lead.
Mohamed Salah then scored a hat-trick to complete the humiliation for United, who are now eight points off league leaders Chelsea after just nine games.
Van de Beek is one of the few members of the United squad who cannot share any of the blame for their side’s desperately poor performance at Old Trafford.
He was left on the bench once again by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as his £35million move from Ajax continues to falter.
Having played just six minutes of the league campaign so far, the 24-year-old could be forgiven for not working hard.
Instead, though, the United outcast continues to do all he can to force his way into Solskjaer’s plans, which was further shown by his response at full-time of the Liverpool defeat.

Van de Beek went back out onto the pitch and continued to do training runs with a coach despite failing to get on against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Some of those Van de Beek training runs were caught on camera by broadcast journalist Shane Hannon, with the Dutchman joined on the pitch by ground staff.
Solskjaer has continued to insist that the midfielder can find a place within his side, despite his current difficulties in getting off the bench.

That is something that may have to happen sooner rather than later after Fred and Scott McTominay were utterly outplayed by Liverpool’s trio of central midfielders on Sunday.
Van de Beek's only other appearances this season came in a 45-minute cameo in the Champions League defeat to Young Boys and in the Carabao Cup loss to West Ham.
